Question

Jeffery wants to save the same amount of money each week to buy a new bike. He needs $252. If he wants the bike in 14 weeks, how much money should Jeffery save each week?

2 Answer

  • Given that he is saving a uniform amount of money each week, all you need to do is divide $252 into 14 equal pieces, one piece for each week.

    252/14=18

    So he must save $18 each week, as if he saves that every week for 14 weeks he will end up with $252
  • 252/14=18
    Total amount of money/how many weeks=rate:money per week
    FINAL ANSWER: $18 PER WEEK
